Our 2005 Rubicon rebuild

Our rebuild starts next weekend.

I am going to start striping the Jeep today. It goes to the shop next Saturday to start the rebuild.

Here are some example pictures of what kind of build we are doing. We will be installing Spidertrax axles front and rear,Wilwood brakes, full hydro steering, spool in the rear with Detroit in the front. Fox coilovers and bipass on all for corners, 20" beadlocks with 42" Krawlers and a Atlas Transfer case. Can't wait! And next year it will get a built LS1 and built race turbo 400!

The aluminum rails are for tie down rings to clip into.

Friday after work picked up a used hardtop. Then on Saturday dropped it off at Exile Fabrications to get the build started.
